    I can get MEAN when I'm hungry and don't have time for food. My husband even tells me "I think we should get you fed" that's how bad it can get.
    In our house, it's called being "hangry"

    I eat one of these things before breakfast unless I'm running late (cereal then, meh).. Most mornings, I make a smoothie with kale or spinach (start your day off with some greens!), almond milk, frozen banana, frozen fruit (usually mango, strawberry, raspberry, etc.), and a big dollop of either peanut butter or plain greek yogurt. Sometimes I add chia seeds, cucumber, and tomato. I usually use my smoothie as a way to use up fruit and some veggies that are about to go bad. I also swear by Ezekial english muffins with cream cheese. So yummy! And I also like flavored greek yogurt with bear naked granola. Aaand I love oatmeal too. I have oatmeal down to a science! 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 sliced banana. Microwave for 2 minutes. Add scoop of peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and whip it up. Add the rest of the banana sliced on top, a few chocolate chips if you're feeling crazy or a sprinkle of nuts. Delish!
